Reasons of the Heart
“Apologetics has a deeply human side that is concerned with the whole person,” says William Edgar. This book bears that out in both tone and content. While affirming the importance of reason in answering unbelief, Edgar invites us to make full use of the diverse forms of persuasion aimed at the unbelieving heart.
Reasons of the Heart prepares us to explain the gospel in ways that reach the entire person. These biblical strategies address ways of knowing that exceed a dry rationalism.
“Effective apologetics is an art: it addresses the whole person—mind, emotion, and will. With insight and practical wisdom, William Edgar outlines, clarifies, and illustrates the complex apologetic tasks. What intrigues me most is his explanation of how the Bible itself—from start to finish—engages in apologetics. Excellent for both beginning and veteran apologists.” - James W. Sire
